XTC - Black Sea (1980)

Post image

This is another vinyl relic that’s been added to my “Essentials” vinyl collection. This 2019 re-press is NOT the Steven Wilson remaster but the original 1980 pressing.

( That’s what the Blu-ray, high resolution, everything-including-the-kitchen-sink releases are for )

This is just pure pop perfection that sounds as unique and fresh as when I first heard it.

There is no language in our lungs

There is no muscle in our tongues

To tell the world what’s in our hearts

No further comment necessary.

The big news of the day was the passing of guitar maestro and personal hero, Jeff Beck. I chose not to spend the evening playing his music but did play a couple of tracks earlier in the day.
